Great Damage by Forest Fire.
Forest fires are raging in these
parts. The roacl to Shevlin is
lined with blaze, and the passers
by are strangled with the dense
smoke. Tne woods are all afire,
and the slashings of the past
winter are great fields of wreath
ing flame mounting to a great
height. Homes are threatened
with destruction and stock is
driven from their bounteous
pasture to slough holes and bogs.
Dense popple and hard wood for
ests are being destroyed by the
careless smoker or some other
traveler. A penalty is levied on
persons setting these fires, and
if^4lie campers, etc., were
warcxied closer there would be
less loss by these fires.Mallard
